The delegates to the Balkan league

He laid emphasis on tho unity of
the allies, declaring:

Greece's attitude In connection with

home than It is for It to he raised in
any church without proper home
lire." declared Judge James 14. Tel
ler today, when he declined the writ
of habeas corpus which would have
taken little Marie Flannery from her
foster mother. Mrs. L. B. Boltou, of
Credo. Colorado, this morning.
Marie was adopted hv the Dolton
family immediately upon her birth.
The mother died within u Tew hours
after the child came into the world.
In squalid surroundings. 'Patrick J.
Flannery, the father, decided thut
the child should 1 m brought up In a
Catholic church, of which he was a
member, and started a fight to re
cover possession of the child. Dur
ing the litigution he died, with the
final request to his brother, Richard
that he continue the struggle to get
the girl Into Catholicism.
The case was first heard In the ju
venile court, where Mrs. Dolton ad
mitted she did not believe In Chris
tianity as taught by the modern
churches and preachers, but that her
religion was the Bible.
